Avocado-Green Tea Popsicle

This popsicle gets its extra creaminess from the trio of avocado, banana, and yogurt. It tastes indulgent but weighs in at only about 100 calories. Enjoy this refreshing treat on a hot summer's day.

Ingredients

Servings  6   Serving Size   1 popsicle per serving

  • 1 medium avocado, halved and pitted
  • 1 medium banana, peeled, and coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/2 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon green tea matcha powder
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Directions

Tip: Click on step to mark as complete.

  1. Put all the ingredients in a food processor or blender. Process until the mixture is smooth.
  2. Carefully pour the mixture into six 4-ounce ice pop molds. Insert wooden ice pop sticks. Freeze until firm, at least 8 hours.
  3. Just before serving, remove from the freezer. Run the exterior of the ice pop molds under warm water to loosen the ice pops and detach them form the molds.

Cooking Tip: When measuring sticky ingredients, such as honey or peanut butter, lightly spray the spoon or cup with cooking spray. The ingredient will slide right off the spoon or out of the cup.

Tip: Avocados are a versatile, healthy fruit to have on hand. When you need one to ripen quickly, put the avocado in a paper bag with a banana. Seal the bag tightly. The banana produces ethylene gas (a plant hormone that encourages ripening). Let the bag stand overnight or up to 24 hours to speed up the ripening process.
